Sound of Thunder is an unofficial Duran Duran live album, recorded during Blondie's Tracks Across America Tour at the Pine Knob Theatre in Detroit, MI, USA on 9 August 1982.

About the album[]

The album is a recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Pine Knob Theatre, a 15,274-seat amphitheater located in Clarkston, Michigan near to the Pine Knob ski area. This was the only show performed in the state of Michigan on the tour.

Featuring Duran Duran as an opening act, the tour was originally planned as 41 concerts. Unfortunately guitarist Chris Stein of Blondie discovered he had a rare life-threatening illness, so only 20 shows took place with Duran Duran performing at 12 of them. Shortly after Blondie split up.

This is a stereo soundboard quality recording. The album features many of Duran Duran songs played at a slightly quicker tempo, including "Last Chance on the Stairway".

During the evening, Simon Le Bon introduced "Hungry Like the Wolf" by saying "This one is our new single, off the album Rio." The single was later re-released in the USA and peaked at no.3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in March 1983.

The album finishes with a punk version of "Anyone Out There".
